Spy Map of Valley Forge
Highlighted by Library
A map of the Valley Forge camp,
which nearly brought the Ameri-
can Revolution to a disastrous end
in the winter of 1777-1778 will go
on display today at Clements Lib-
Drawn by an American Tory
spy, the map was the only dia-
gram made of the Valley Forge en-
campment during the long winter
of privation spent there by Wash-
ington and his starving army.
IT WAS FOUND in the files of
the British army and came to the
Clements Library several years ago
when the library acquired all the
private papers of General Henry
Clinton, British commander dur-
ing the Revolutionary period.

Ward, '52, will argue for the af-
firmative, while Larry Rothman,

The story of the map and of
its originator, Capt. James Park-
er, a Virginian loyal to the Brit-
ish cause, will be dramatized at
8 p.m. today over University sta-
Posing as a merchant with 14
wagonloads of food to sell, Parker
rode out from Philadelphia in mid-
winter looking for Washington's
army which the British thought
was completely "lost" somewhere
in southwestern Pennsylvania.
THE SPY located the camp at
Valley Forge and discovered that
the Americans had thrown up
breastworks against attack and
were drilling regularly under the
direction of a professional German
soldier, General von Steuben.
Escaping to Philadelphia, Park-
er drew his map of the Valley
Forge encampment and reported
his discoveries to Generals Howe
General Clinton, had just receiv-
ed news that France had come to
the aid of the rebels and had de-
clared war on Britain. Fearful of
French action, Clinton ordered
Howe to abandon Philadelphia and
concentrate all the British forces
in New York, giving the hard-
pressed American army time to
recover its strength.

All men interested in promo-
tions, programs, production or of-
fice manager work for the big
all-male musical comedy are in-
vited to attend tonight's session,
according to Jim Ebersole, '50,
The production crewswill be re-
sponsible for scenery, stage props,
and all the art work which goes in-
to the creation of the stage set-
tings. A production the size of
Union Opera will require a lot of
men for these jobs, Ebersole said.
Promotions work will include
newspaper, radio and general cam-
pus publicity efforts for the show.
Those working on programs will
sell advertising, write copy and
prepare page layouts.
Besides seeking technical work-
ers, the opera is now issuing a last
call for music. "All music must be
turned in by tomorrow to Rm. 3G
of the Union," Don Wyant, music
With the opera scheduled for
production late in March, casting
will begin some time after the
Christmas vacation, and rehear-
sals will start early in the spring
